Stating that the URGE Project, named Boosting International Competitiveness in fresh cherry and grape products, which opened the horizon of the sector, Hayrettin Uçak, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Aegean Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Exporters Union, also said that the companies participating in the URGE Project also achieved great gains in the fields of institutionalization and efficient production.

“Despite Turkey’s fresh cherry and grapes production is the worldwide leader, in terms of exports we fall behind some countries with less production” he added. Uçak also remarked, “Chile has become the world’s largest player in the export of cherries by opening up remote markets by air cargo. That’s why we give much importance to air cargo and thus focused on the Far East market.”

“There has been a serious awareness in the sector about diversifying existing markets for sustainable and value-added exports and expanding our exports to the Far East market. Thanks to our URGE project, we have started exporting to Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore and South Africa. We believe that our exports to the Far East will increase exponentially thanks to this project in the coming period” he underlined.
